Why do we hate the sound of our own voices?

I was reading this article from Neel Bhatt, Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology, UW Medicine, University of Washington and it covered the expected two ways we hear our voice and why we find it “cringeworthy”. I was familiar with this from previous work I have done with audio in both broadcasting, filmmaking, animation, and game design.

What I learned that was new was the impact of our self-perception vs. reality and how this important component of self-identity jars our sense of self. Something to think about. What pictures of ourselves do we have from our senses and how valid are they?

Aviary Releases Online Audio Editing: Myna

Podcasting redid the standard “Create your own multi-track ringtone” project using the tool Aviary just released last week: an  online audio editor call Myna.  http://aviary.com/tools/myna

The class voted it extremely easy to use, and useful for basic audio editing.  No doubt as more filters get added, we will find it useful for even more.  Additional comments indicated it had a clean, intuitive interface and was fun to use.  The exported MP3s after using the “mixdown” feature, the project results indicate it is another first class online tool from Aviary.

From the website:  Use Myna to remix music tracks and audio clips. Apply sound effects and record your own voice or instruments!
